"Through the activities that were available to us and the cultural events held throughout the semester I was able to meet some amazing people. You don’t realize until you get home and you’re away from the BISC how much you miss the communities that you have built with each different person or group." –Joanna Albers, BISC First Year Program 2012/13
"I had lived in Asia and North America, but had never been to Europe. Attending the BISC was my opportunity to gain another perspective on the world." – Hao-Tien Pan, BISC First Year Program 2012/13.
"The location of the BISC let us see so much of the world and really apply what we learned. I never imagined I'd get to see so many cool parts of the world as a direct result of my course selections and I'm really tried to appreciate how wonderful that is. Between Field Studies and our tiny class sizes I know we really got a once in a lifetime opportunity." – Kate Meagher, BISC First Year Program 2012/13.
"I wanted an opportunity to do something different—something that would broaden more than just my academic knowledge. That’s why I chose the BISC for my first year." – Dov Derin, BISC First Year Program 2012/13.
"Studying international law in an international environment and being able to interact with practitioners in that field is what drew me to this program." – Blaise Power. Global Law Program 2013. University of Ottawa JD, class of 2015.
"I hope to work in a position related to the Olympics in the future. The Interdisciplinary Studies in Global Health and Disability program gave me further insight into the Paralympic movement and promoting sport for people with disabilities." – Ty Greene.
